Hundreds of Coldwell Banker® affiliated offices across the United States and Canada are hosting adoption events in conjunction with animal shelters and rescue groups in their local communities.

The Coldwell Banker National Pet Adoption Weekend is a continuation of the “Homes for Dogs Project,” which the Coldwell Banker brand launched in collaboration with, North America’s largest non-profit pet adoption website. Since the project’s launch, the two organizations have helped facilitate tens of thousands of pet adoptions under the Homes for Dogs Project.

The National Pet Adoption Weekend allows Coldwell Banker companies to express their passion for this cause and make an impact in their local communities. Tommy King, vice president of marketing at Coldwell Banker Real Estate Group, the top Coldwell Banker affiliated company by transaction sides, says they have scheduled 42 events and counting across Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan and Indiana.

“Every time we host events across our company, all our managers and real estate agents get a true sense of unity. Sixty offices, working toward one goal, at the same time,” King said. “We are a large company and it’s really special when we can find ways to come together as one. It makes us more intimate, more in touch with our communities, and that’s incredibly important when it comes to real estate. It shows that our real estate agents are connected to the communities they serve.”
